Trey Songz is currently working on the release of his fifth album “Chapter 5,” which will showcase his storytelling rapping abilities.
When Trey’s producer, Troy Taylor was asked about the project’s direction, he answered, “What we’re gonna do is elaborate on other songs. ‘Can’t Be Friends’ was a huge smash, but on Chapter 5 we’re gonna maybe go into a little bit more of the girl he was talking about. We once had a song called ‘Black Roses’ on Ready; we’re gonna tap on it to tell you a little bit more of the story. So Chapter 5 represents elaborating.”
Trey Songz — whose real name is Tremaine Neverson — was discovered by Taylor in 2000, when Trey was 15-years-old, in a talent competition. Trey released his debut album “I Gotta Make It” in 2005, and since has released three more albums. In 2010, Trey won the BET award for “Best Male R&B Artist”.
“Chapter 5” is the follow-up to last year’s “Passion, Pain & Pleasure,” and is due for release in 2012.
